    Green Guard Nature observs Earth Day 2013 at Nagaon
Green Guard Nature Organization collaborated with Sanctuary Asia to observe Earth Day 2013 at Nagaon by educating students of two schools; Loyola School, Nagaon & Jasodadevi Goswami High School, Chapanala, Nagaon. The first is a privately run, urban, English medium school and the later, a rural, Assamese medium, Govt. school with most students from fringe forest communities. Two films, 'She's Alive' & 'The Himalayan Meltdown' were screened and members of our organization explained the issues whenever needed, besides elaborating on the significance of the day. Copies of Sanctuary Asia were also distributed. A Chinese Pangolin, rescued a day before from local hunters by a Green Guard team, was shown to the amazed children at Chapanala, who vowed to stop killing of such animals in their respective communities.
